Francine Griesing, Founder and Managing Member of the Firm, was interviewed by IdeaMensch on her path to starting Griesing Law and how to be successful as an entrepreneur and business leader. In the interview, Fran shared these key learnings:
- Start making a strategic plan early and update it often; setting out your short and long term goals and action steps on how you are going to achieve those goals.
- Set up a compensation and advancement system that encourages team members to be their best selves, whatever that means for them.
- Avoid processes that cause team members to compete with one another such as “origination credit” that causes your team to fight over clients rather than collaborating to serve them best.
- Take care of your body and mind by simplifying your life, exercising, meditating and other self-care so you are in the best condition to take care of your business and its stakeholders.
